  • [01] Libyan emissary in Athens

    Greek deputy foreign minister Dimitris Dollis on Thursday received Libyan emissary Mohamed Tahir Siala, just hours ahead of an emergency meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels on the situation in Libya.

    The meeting was held with agreement between foreign minister Dimitris Droutsas and EU High Representative for foreign affairs and security policy Baroness Catherine Ashton, so that "views would be heard" ahead of the EU foreign ministers' council, and was also attended by ministry secretary general Ioannis-Alexis Zepos.

    No statements were made to the press afterwards.

    Libyan emissaries had similar meetings in several other EU member states on Thursday.
